STRATEGIES FOR REDUCING FOOD WASTE IN RETAILING: A MULTI-STAKEHOLDER PERSPECTIVE Authors: C. Holweg, C. Teller, H. Kotzab, G. Reiner Food waste has become an increasing issue for retailers in industrialized nations. The research investigates the causes of food waste across product categories and different retail store formats. In a mixed methods approach face-to-face interviews with store managers serve as the key source of information, complemented by expert interviews. Results reveal that the occurrence of food waste is impacted by various stakeholders and factors as e.g., the retail parent organization, employees, consumer’s shopping behavior, or regulatory constraints. We propose measures of prevention and reduction which also illustrate opportunities behind the issue of food waste.
